I think we all agree here that the most pressing needs for this team are o line, DE depth and CB/KR. For me, right behind these needs which we have discussed quite a bit recently is linebacker help. Sure we tied up GB, that was great and I love Clint Session but I have been distinctly underwhelmed by Philip Wheeler and the contribution he has made to the Colts. Behind them who exactly is there.... maybe Hagler if we resign him?
Anyway, although I don't get to watch too much college ball here in the UK, just the occasional game on ESPN America, 2 players that caught my eye this year were (in my order of preference) Navarro Bowman of Penn State and Roderick Muckelroy of Texas. I deliberately haven't gone after the real big name guys that will likely go in the first 2 rounds as I don't think this is realistic for this team. Whenever I watched Penn State or Texas this last year, these 2 guys seemed to be always involved for their respective D's, racking up a tonne of tackles and not infrequently making big plays. I realise that Bowman has had some behaviour issues off the field but mr Polian loves Penn State and I think being in an environment like the Colts dressing room could help straighten him out. So, my feeling is that picking up someone like Bowman in the 3rd or maybe Muckelroy if he slips to the 5th could really help out our Colts next season. I'd love to hear what you guys think, reasonable shout or shut up dude and stick to talking about soccer?
